Council Candidates who take the Streets for People Pledge are committing to improve streets for their residents

2 April 2018

Help to make your London borough a better place for walking and cycling: ask your local council leadership candidates to back the Streets for People Pledge before the 2018 Local Elections on May 3rd.

If you are a candidate please see this page.

London Borough Councils together control 95% of the capital’s streets and have the funding available from the Mayor of London to change them.

With four years in office, a council leader can make a huge difference to the streets Londoners live, work and travel on. With a commitment at this election, we can make this happen.

The Streets for People Pledge asks London’s prospective council leaders to pledge to:

  1. Create three neighbourhoods free of through-traffic
  2. Create at least two schemes that connect the places people need to go to with protected space for cycling on busy roads
  3. Ensure redesigned streets are easy and safe for people on foot to cross and are truly accessible to all
  4. Create places people want to be, by enhancing and increasing public and pavement space and introducing seating, shade and shelter

If you want to know more about the pledges, download our PDF briefing document for councillors.
